  1. I am in the process of completing a historic documentation project in Aztec Ruins National Monument. This work includes analysing inscriptions placed on beams and ceilings within intact 900 year old rooms of a prehistoric Chacoan Village. Our focus of work is between 1880 and 1915 and have need of the mediums that were available for placement at that time. I.E. Quill Pens, types of inks, pencils, coloured pencils. All colours that were available and the types of inks and pens available at that time. Could you possible scan and copy any information for me. I do not need the actual items just the descriptions
